I reread it, twice. And my conclusion is I was unclear and you didn't get what 
I meant initially. Let me sum it up again:

- all accounts on can create new scratch pad repos (i.e. with 
clones or new repos)
- only dev accounts have commit access to anything but their own scratchpad 

I see how this was not possible (probably?) in SVN, but now with git each 
project is it's own repo. Special casing the commit rights to scratch pads 
shouldn't be hard (I hope).

See above, this is nothing I ever wanted to change. I only speak about 
scratchpad (or what was playground).

Hope this makes it clear that most of your email is just not relevant.
